Untwisting Scriptures that were used to tie you up, gag you, and tangle your mind: Book 2 Patriarchy and Authority

cover art
Gently read by the author, "Untwisting Scriptures" shines a light on Scriptures used to keep people in bondage, by faithfully examining words, context, & the heart of God for His people. "Untwisting Scriptures" deconstructs toxic faith, to rebuild it on the foundation of the true Lord Jesus Christ.

Have you found that you can’t read the Bible without being sent back into a painful place? Have the Scriptures been twisted to keep you in bondage?

The real Jesus wants to set you free.

In Untwisting Scriptures: Book 2 Patriarchy and Authority, Rebecca Davis addresses the hold that “patriarchal” parents have had over their adult children in the name of “Children obey your parents” or “Rebellion is the sin like witchcraft.”

She also addresses the harm religious leaders have done as they hold “Obey your leaders and submit to their authority” over the heads of those they manipulate and control.

A toxic faith needs to be deconstructed and rebuilt on the solid foundation of the true Lord Jesus Christ. Untwisting Scriptures does this by faithfully examining word meaning, context, and the heart of God for His people. This book will untwist and present the beautiful truth of God’s Word, exposing sin where it needs to be revealed, and offering hope to those who desperately need it.

Scriptures can be untwisted. You can walk away from the spiritual abuse of patriarchy and cult-like authority without leaving the real Jesus. In fact, you may just find a God you never knew.


A careful and thorough examination of Scriptures often used to oppress, compared to the body of the Word of God
A picture of who Jesus Christ really is, to, for, and in the lives of those who put their faith in Him
